Blizzard published an official preview of the Broken Shore and content tied to it, such as the intro assault, the Armies of Legionfall faction, defense structures and the Sentinax.

We already covered most of the content.

For the heroes of Azeroth, the Broken Shore represents pain, sorrow . . . and an opportunity for vengeance. It is the source of the Burning Legion’s seemingly unending incursion, and an ever-present reminder of the defeat suffered at their hands by both the Horde and the Alliance. But now it’s time to return to where the invasion began—this time as a more prepared force. 

Assault on the Broken Shore

Hospitality isn’t the Legion’s strong suit, so don’t expect them to roll out the welcome mat for Azeroth’s forces. You’re going to need to break through their defenses, clear the beach, and establish a foothold for your base. Similar to the launch of World of Warcraft: Legion, if you’ve max level, Khadgar will have a quest for you which will begin a solo scenario on the Broken Shore.

You and your forces will progress through a series of stages as you press the attack against the Burning Legion. This culminates in the infiltration of one of the Legion’s ships to face the dreadlord Mephistroth — this won’t be the last you’ll see of him however.

Once complete, you’ll arrive at Deliverance Point. This base of operations will serve as a sanctuary for members of all Class Orders as they begin working on a new campaign on the Broken Shore alongside the Armies of Legionfall.

Deliverance Point and Securing the Broken Shore

DZZ15VYJVH0Q1489168176987.jpg

Your first foray into the Broken Shore will involve getting a few things established and learning more about these fel-befouled lands. Evidence remains of a once shining elven civilization, and crumbling structures are all that bear witness to what once was. Even the statues have been touched by the corruption of the Legion.

As you progress through the Broken Shore, you’ll undertake a variety of new World Quests for rewards and continue the evolution of your Artifact weapon.

Completing World Quests within the Broken Shore will also provide Legionfall War Supplies and reputation with the Armies of Legionfall. They can also be obtained from other sources such as rare Elites found around the island. Legionfall War Supplies are essential for contributing to the construction of powerful buildings within Deliverance Point, which will provide additional benefits for those working their way through the Broken Shore.

There’s plenty to do here and more than enough demons to keep everyone on their guard.

Constructing Defenses

You can contribute to the construction of three different buildings by accessing the Legionfall Construction Table. The first time a building is established, a brief scene plays and a quest becomes available that grants the buffs associated with the building. Each building provides access to different benefits, and there are a variety of extra bonuses each building has a chance to provide. Make sure you pay close attention to them—these additional bonuses could sway your choice of which to donate to. Contributions toward each building are accumulated across your game region, so choose wisely.

Constructing each building requires a steady influx of Legionfall War Supplies. Once constructed, the building is available for 3 days, during which players can reap the benefits the building provides. The building will come under under attack on the last of those days, after which it is destroyed and must be rebuilt. You’ll then need to wait a cooldown period of one day before you can contribute again to rebuild.

Here are the buildings that can be constructed:

Mage Tower

Harness arcane energies to move Legionfall forces quickly throughout the Broken Isles and uncover challenging agents of the Legion.

  • Benefits Include: Fel Treasures, which provides access to Artifact Challenges, bonus treasure spawns, and city portals.

Here’s an example of just one type of buff that could be provided when this building is constructed:

  • KnowledgeableKnowledgeable: When you loot an item which grants Artifact Power in a raid or dungeon, there’s a chance you will receive a bonus Artifact Power item. (removed)
  • ReputableReputable - Increase reputation gains with the Armies of Legionfall by 30%. (new)
Command Center

A fortified base of operations for Order Hall leaders to gather together and plan their attacks across the Broken Shore.

  • Benefits Include: Forces of the Order, which provides access to dungeon World Quests, the ability to call in Legionfall Reinforcements, and a Challenge Mission.

Here’s an example of just one type of buff that could be provided when this building is constructed:

  • War Effort: When earning Legionfall War Supplies, you have a chance to get bonus Legionfall War Supplies. 

You’ll also have access to your Class Order Command Map here, so you can send your Followers on missions without having to travel back to your Class Hall.

Nether Disruptor

Harness arcane energies to move Legionfall forces quickly throughout the Broken Isles and uncover challenging agents of the Legion.

  • Benefits Include: Epic Hunter, which provides you with access to world bosses, Unstable Nether Portals, and Armorcrafter Commendations.

Here’s an example of just one type of buff that could be provided when this building is constructed:

Reinforced ReinsReinforced Reins: Allows you to interact with objects while mounted.

Fate Smiles Upon YouFate Smiles Upon You - If you fail your bonus roll on the Broken Isles, there is a chance you will have your Seal of Broken Fate refunded. (removed)

Continuing Your Class Hall Quest Line

Where the factions failed, the Class Orders are determined to succeed, and now you have the weapons at hand to make it happen. Each class can continue their Class Order Campaign on the Broken Shore and continue unlocking the power of their Artifact weapon.

For those who are at Artifact Knowledge level 25, you cann unlock Knowledge level 26 and beyond.

For those not at Knowledge level 25, don’t worry. You’ll be led to Dalaran to get a boost up. 

5OBCX72ZCOC51489168176732.jpg

If you’ve purchased all 35 ranks of your Artifact weapon for at least one specialization, a new quest to continue your journey will appear. After a short series of quests, you’ll unlock access to four new traits for your Artifact weapon.

If you haven’t opened all 35 ranks of your available traits, a quest will become available so you can complete that before moving on.

As with the beginning of the expansion, you’ll progress your Class Order quest line over time as you play the Broken Shore experience. You’ll also gain one new Follower a few weeks in and can take part in some new class-specific World Quests on the Broken Shore. In some cases, these World Quests will have you aiding other classes along the way.

Under the Glow of the Sentinax

Looming high above the island is the Burning Legion’s command ship, the Sentinax. Fighting creatures within its shadow, will allow you to loot a beacon from these creatures that can be used to command the ship to open portals. These portals will produce more Legion adversaries for you to take on. Each level provides new opportunities to get a higher-level beacon. These higher-level portals in turn allow access to even more dangerous foes.

Open enough portals and overcome enough adversaries and you’ll eventually gain access to a raid boss for you and some friends to take on. It goes without saying—but we’ll say it anyway—this is a great way to amass Nethershards.

Nethershards are a useful currency for purchasing catch-up gear from the vendors Warmage Kath'leen and Thaumaterge Vashreen in Deliverance Point. These can also be used to purchase chances for higher item level gear as well. We hope you have your good dice ready for those upgrades!

Don’t worry about being confined the shadow of the Sentinax any time you want to collect Nethershards. You’ll also gain them through a variety of other activities and sources as you adventure on the Broken Shore. 

Cathedral of Eternal Night

Once you complete the opening Scenario and first quests on the Broken Shore, you’ll gain access to the new dungeon, Cathedral of Eternal Night. Khadgar will have a quest that will send you into its upper reaches, where you’ll face Mephistroth once more. Venturing into the cathedral isn’t required to progress through the Broken Shore—but if you want another shot at Mephistroth, this is your chance.

While there’s plenty to do on the Broken Shore, don’t be surprised when something like Demon Assaults on the Broken Isles pulls you away.

Ultimately, your efforts on the Broken Shore will lead to a confrontation unlike any other at the Tomb of Sargeras. With powerful Artifact weapons and the Pillars of Creation at hand, victory over the Burning Legion and Kil’jaeden is nearly assured.

Are you ready for the next chapter?

      Our returing player guide is stuffed with relevant information for players that haven't played WoW for a  while and they'd like to give it a go in 7.3.
      If you haven't played WoW for a while, we have a guide for you with all relevant information.
      The main goal of the guide is to keep it short and simple.
      General Tips
      In Patch 7.3, the 3rd relic slot will be unlocked immediately once you reach 110 and there's no need to complete individual campaigns all over again. (Source) You can forget about the Broken Shore content. Artifact Knowledge is now shared. All player start at AK Level 41 and will automatically gain 1 AK Level per week. Only one new Legendary item is added in 7.3. Any player that defeats Argus the Unmaker can get Insignia of the Grand Army. It's rewarded from the quest called The Death of a Titan. More details about the Netherlight Crucible can be found here. Two new factions are added in Patch 7.3: Argussian Reach & Army of the Light, both having new emissary quests. A new Heirloom with an interesting affix was added to the game.  Man'ari Training Amulet. Sacrifice 10% HP to gain 40% increased movement speed for 10 seconds. There are no plans to enable Draenor flying for those that haven't unlocked Draenor Pathfinder. Patch 7.3 Content Rollout
      Not all 7.3 content will be available on day 1.From the latest developer Q/A, the content rollout should look like this:
      Week 1
      Krokuun and the first two chapters of the Argus story will unlock.   Players will be able to unlock Krokuun World Quests. Week 2
      The second Argus zone Mac'Aree will become available and with it the third and fourth chapter of the Argus story. Once you progress through those chapters, you will gain access to Mac'aree World Quests, Kil'jaeden's Terrace World Quests and Western Mac'Aree World Quests. Invasion Points will also open. Week 3
      The last week marks the opening of Argus's last zone, Antoran Wastes. Players will gain access to Antoran Wastes World Quests, the Netherlight Crucible and the new dungeon - Seat of the Triumvirate. All you need to know at this point is that Argus has three zones and once you finish the story in each zone, you will gain access to world quests.
      Reputation Catch-up
      We datamined two Bind-to-Account items related to reputation catch-up with Broken Isles & Argus factions. Sources remain unknown for now. Nathrezim Tome of Manipulation increases rep gains with Broken Isles factions by 200% for 2 hours. The item's intended for alts and doesn't work past level 109. Demon's Soulstone can only be used on Argus and the item increases your reputation standing by 1,000 with all factions. It's good for catching up reputation with the Nightfallen. Gear Catch-up
      New Relinquished items are being added in 7.3 with a base item level of 910. (Source) All items can be purchased for 650 Veiled Argunite (a new currency from Argus World Quests). Crafted 7.3 gear is of ilvl 885 and can be upgraded with Primal Sargerite via Primal Obliterum up to item level 935. Old crafted gear can't be upgraded past 900. You can disenchant it into Chaos Crystal. There's a new shoulder enchant on Argus that will help you farm Primal Sargerite. More information can be found here. Dungeons have had their ilvl increased by 20 item levels on every difficulty. Normal: ilvl 845 (was 825) Heroic: ilvl 865 (was 845) Mythic: ilvl 885 (was 865) World Quest rewards scale up to item level 895. (Source) With the introduction of the Netherlight Crucible, you can now target specific relic types. Antorus the Burning Throne
      The raid won't open immediately with 7.3, but at a later point (probably in Patch 7.3.5). Once Antorus opens, Legendary items will have a base item level of 1,000. (Source) For more information about Patch 7.3, check out our Argus hub.

      Many players are still waiting for Patch 7.3 to go live, before they complete the Mage Tower Challenge for their Artifact weapon appearance, because with increasing item level, the challenge becomes more trivial. If you have your appearance unlocked and think how good you are, you probably haven't heard of Muddymonk!
      The player wrote on reddit that he finished Mage Tower Challenges for each class / specialization - that's a total of 36 challenges. Congratulations! We're posting some screenshots and the rest can be found by visiting the link at the bottom of the article.

      You can find more screenshots here.
